“Used to be GREAT”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

place is ok good view. lots of T.V with sport games and AFV and sometimes old 80's music videos on. Had to go find the high chair the server seemed oblivious. Service is poor unless you are lucky enough to get one of the two good servers. Our waitress first came over and took our drink order. She then brought us back two WARM root-beers with no glass and one chocolate milk that had barely been mixed and ran off without asking if we were ready to order. we didn't see her again for about 5- 10 mins. she then finally took our orders and disappeared again. We saw her during this time talking on the phone and running to assist another server with a larger table that came in AFTER us yet were served a good ten minutes before us. it took around 30 mins for us to be finally served. used to be really great food even though it is a sports bar. the place and the feeling has really gone down since they lost the ladies who made it a great experience, and made it feel like home.

“Was ok”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The place was ok. Pretty average food in a nice location. The service was quite poor and were sat with no menu's etc for a while, but this is a busy little place with a good atmosphere so that made up for any errors. Worth a visit and a seat outside next to the river.

“The Snuggery McHenry”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

It was a very good restaurant. The meals that I have had there were tasty and the servers were very nice. They have a great view of the Fox River and you can sit outdoors when the weather is nice. I like this restaurant a lot.

“great view good food nice bar”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

I have eaten there many times. My company takes groups of visitors there for lunch and supper and have never had a complaint or long wait for food or drinks. i highly recommend getting a couple of appetizers to start. Summer dining outside is very pleasant

“You Can't Beat The View”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

On a sunny day, not too hot, what a better place to have lunch then along the Fox River watching the boats go by. A few friends were there on such a day. No complaints on the food and all my friends thought the service was "fantastic". No one is rushing you and there is plenty of outdoor seating. Went there for lunch, no problem sitting outside. I was told at night it might be a little different. Being a boater it's important on the condition of the docks and if it's easy to get your boat in. Docks are I good shape, not a problem docking.
